also, 

The following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor,) 
Cf go, January 5, 1914.J 

To the jrable, the City Council: 

Gent; .men — I herewith return, 
without my approval, an ordinance 
passed by your Honorable Body, 
December 29, 1913, and appearing 
in the printed Journal of that date, 
at page ,3242, authorizing the Stock 
Quotation Telegraph Company to 
maintain and operate lines of wires 
for the transmission and distribu- 
tion of general and financial news 
and market reports by "Morse" and 
by "ticker 1 ' instruments. 

The Law Department has advised 
me that under the terms of Sec- 
tion one of the ordinance the 
grantee might claim the right to 
construct subways or tunnels for 
the purpose of making connections 
between its lines of wires and sub- 
scribers 1 or the grantee's premises 
regardless of the distance involved. 
The intention was to authorize the 
construction of short lateral serv- 
ice conduits for the purpose of 
making such connections and the 
use of the words "subways or tun- 
nels" in expressing that intention 
makes the meaning ambiguous and 
therefore open to claims which 
might hereafter be inimical to the 
City's interests. 

For this reason, I respectfully 
suggest that the vote by which the 
ordinance was passed be reconsid- 



ered and that the ordinance be re- 
passed with the amendments sub- 
mitted herewith. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

The following are the amend- 
ments submitted with the forego- 
ing veto message : 

Amend the ordinance entitled "An 
Ordinance authorizing the Stock 
Quotation Telegraph Company to 
maintain and operate lines of wires 
for the transmission and distribu- 
tion of general and financial news 
and market reports by 'Morse' and 
•by 'ticker' instruments, in the City 
of 'Chicago, Illinois," passed Decem- 
ber 29, 1913, and printed at page 
3242 et seq. of the Journal of the 
City Council as follows :

tion one (1) of the ordinance as

lowing : 

"now or hereafter owned, opera- 
ted or controlled by the City of 
Chicago or by persons or corpora- 
tions duly authorized to con- 
struct, maintain and operate con- 
duits, subways or tunnels in the

in the City of Chicago." 
Strike out the following words 
of Section one (1) of the ordinance 
as printed in lines fourteen (14) to 
twenty-four (24) inclusive in the 
left-hand column of said page 3243 : 
"no authority being hereby 
granted to open any street or 
alley, or to disturb any pavement 
for the purpose of constructing 
any conduits, subways or tunnels 
in which to install, repair or op- 
erate said line or lines of electric

stalled, repaired and operated in 
conduits, subways and tunnels un- 
der any public street, alley, and the

of Chicago or by persons or cor- 
porations duly authorized to con- 
struct, maintain and operate con- 
duits, subways or tunnels in the

ing three hundred feet in length

rented by said Stock Quotation Tel- 
egraph Company for placing its 
line or lines of wires therein, noth- 
ing herein shall be construed as in 
any way granting any new or ad- 
ditional rights or privileges to any 
other person, persons or corporation 
now using or that may hereafter use 
any conduit, subway or tunnel under 
any street or alley of the City of 
Chicago, or under the Chicago 
River, or its several branches, for 
the purpose of carrying on the busi- 
ness of such person, persons or cor- 
poration in any way. 

Said grantee shall at all times

compensation to be paid to the City 
as rental for the use of such space

visions of Section 2510 of The Chi- 
cago Code of 1911. If the rental

tion, or rental, as may be prescribed 
by such general ordinance or or- 
dinances hereafter passed. Where 
the City has no conduits, subways 
or tunnels available for the use of

persons or corporations authorized 
by ordinance to construct, main- 
tain and operate underground con- 
duits, subways or tunnels, and may, 



with the consent of the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works and the City

ion and to the satisfaction of the 
City Electrician. 

It is expressly understood and 
agreed that the rights and privileges 
granted hereunder are subject to all 
general ordinances of the City of 
Chicago now in force or which may 
hereafter become in force. 

It is further agreed that the 
grantee herein, at its own expense, 
will upon order of the Commis- 
sioner of Public Works and under 
his direction, alter, change and re- 
move within a reasonable time 
from under any street, alley or pub- 
lic way, and from any conduit, sub- 
way or tunnel, any and all of its 
wires that may in any way inter- 
fere with the construction and op- 
eration of any municipal work 
hereafter undertaken. 

At the termination of the privi- 
leges hereby granted by lapse of 
time or otherwise, said grantee 
shall remove all its wires from all 
conduits, subways and tunnels or 
public ways and upon failure of the 
grantee so to do, the Commissioner 
of Public Works may cause the

said grantee shall, within ten (10)

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the

dinance entitled "An ordinance in 
relation to the construction, equip- 
ment, maintenance and operation of 
a comprehensive system of sub- 
ways for passenger transportation 
in the City of Chicago." 

Section 3 of said ordinance au- 
thorized and directed the Commit- 
tee on Local Transportation of the 
City Council and the members of 
the Harbor and Subway Commis- 
sion of the City of Chicago, to ad- 
vertise for the proposals for con- 
struction of a subway upon the 
terms and conditions set forth in 
the ordinance and to the detailed 
plans and specifications prepared 
by the Harbor and Subway Commis- 
sion. 

Pursuant to such provision on 
November 14, 1913, your Committee 
on Local Transportation provided 
(with the concurrence of the Har- 
bor and Subway Commission) for 
advertisement for proposals to be 
addressed to the Harbor and Subway

composed of one (1) part said Port- 
land cement and three (3) parts 
torpedo sand, or three (3) parts of 
limestone screenings, free from 
dirt, dust and other impurities, ex- 
posed to the air for one (1) day and 
immersed in water for six (6) days, 
shall develop an ultimate tensile 
strength of two hundred (200) 
pounds per square inch. 

One (1) part cement which shall 
stand the above test and comply 
with the above requirements, and 
three (3) parts of torpedo sand, or 
three (3) parts of limestone 
screenings, free from dirt, dust and 
other impurities, shall be thor- 
oughly mixed dry and then made 
into a mortar with the least possi- 
ble amount of water. 

Six (6) parts of the best quality 
of slag, limestone or other stone 
which shall be equal in quality for 
concrete purposes, of a size that 
will pass tnrough a ring of two (2; 
inches internal diameter and be 
held on a ring of one-half ( % ) inch 
internal diameter, all of which slag 
or stone shall be thoroughly 
cleaned, free from all foreign sub- 
stances and drenched with water, 
shall then be incorporated imme- 
diately with the mortar. Each 
batch of concrete shall be thor- 
oughly mixed and at once spread 
upon the surface of said roadbeds 
and thoroughly compacted by ram- 
ming until free mortar appears on 
the surface. The surface of said 
layer of concrete shall be parallel 
with and three and one-half (3%) 
inches below the top of the finished 
pavement. 



Upon the concrete foundation as 
above specified shall be laid a bin- 
der course, composed of asphaltic 
cement and gravel or clean broken 
limestone crusher run and of vary- 
ing sizes which will pass through a 
ring of one (1) inch internal 
diameter. 

The gravel or stone shall be 
heated and thoroughly mixed with 
the asphaltic cement in the propor- 
tions of six (6) parts by weight of 
asphaltic cement and ninety-four 
(94) parts by weight of gravel or 
stone. This binder shall be spread 
on the base above described, and 
while in a hot and plastic condition 
shall be rolled until it has a uni- 
form thickness of one and one-half 
(IV2) inches. The upper surface 
shall be exactly parallel with and 
two (2) inches below the finished 
surface of the pavement. 

Upon this binder course shall be 
laid a wearing surface or pavement 
proper, which shall be composed of 
asphaltic cement seventeen (17) 
parts, sand seventy- three (73) 
parts,and pulverized carbonate of 
lime ten (10) parts. The sand and 
asphaltic cement shall be heated 
separately to a temperature of 
three hundred (300) degrees Fah- 
renheit. The pulverized carbonate 
of lime shall be mixed with the 
sand and these ingredients then 
mixed with the asphaltic cement at 
the above temperature in an appa- 
ratus which shall effect a perfect 
mixture. 

The material for pavement when 
mixed as above shall be spread at 
a temperature of two hundred and 
f.fty (250) degrees Fahrenheit. It 
shall be carefully spread by means 
of hot iron rakes in such a manner 
as to give uniform and regular

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the report of 
the sub-committee submitted with 
the foregoing report: 

Chicago, December 29, 1913. 
Hon. Joseph F. Ryan, Chairman, 
Committee on Schools, Fire, Po- 
lice and Civil Service, City Coun- 
cil, City of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — The undersigned sub- 
committee to which was referred 
the matter of investigating the 
needs and requirements of the Fire 
Department as to new stations and 
sites, as well as the request of the 
Chicago Fire Underwriters' Associ- 
ation for a partial re-organization of 
that department, begs leave to re- 
port as follows: 

The subcommittee has just com- 
pleted a personal inspection of all 
of the 136 buildings of the depart- 



ment, detailed report of which is 
being compiled and will follow later. 

This preliminary report is made 
so that if the City Council desires 
to submit to referendum the ques- 
tion of a bond issue for fire stations 
at the coming spring election, the 
amount thereof may be included in 
the appropriation ordinance of 
1914. 

We find that the City owns 120 
single houses, 14 double houses, a 
repair shop and one detached horse 
hospital. Of these, 71 single and 10 
double houses are in good condi- 
tion, or by reasonable expenditure 
for repairs and alterations, can 
made so. Thirty-nine new single 
and four new double houses are 
imperatively required to replace 
present buildings. 

It is estimated that the cost of 
erecting 43 new houses to replace 
those absolutely inadequate and to 
put the remaining houses in first- 
class condition will require the sum 
of approximately $1,500,000. 

There are an insufficient number 
of engine and truck companies for 
the proper protection of the City. 
The Chicago department, during the 
year 1913 will have responded to 
more than 15,000 alarms of fire. 
This will be equal to, if not in ex- 
cess of those responded in New 
York, which has a smaller area, 
three times as many men, and three 
times as much equipment. The 
New York's department's proportion 
of motor apparatus is far in excess 
of that of this city. 

In many rapidly growing sections 
of this city the length of the runs 
required of fire companies precludes 
adequate fire protection. The de- 
partment estimates that it needs 38 
new engine and truck companies, 
for which it will be necessary to se- 
cure sites for, and erect 38 new 
houses. The estimate for this pur- 
pose is approximately $1,000,000. 

We therefore recommend that the 
Finance Committee be requested to 
include in the 1914 budget an ap-

propriation of $2,500,000, conting- 
ent upon bond issue, for the erec- 
tion of 43 buildings to replace fire 
stations now inadequate, unsanitary 
and unfit, and for the purchase of 
sites for and the ultimate erection 
of approximately 38 new fire sta- 
tions. Your subcommittee believes 
that such a bond issue is impera- 
tively necessary and that if the peo- 
ple of Chicago may be made to rec- 
ognize the necessity therefor, it will 
pass without question. 

In the final report of your sub- 
committee the reasons will be given 
for recommending the bond issue 
above mentioned, as well as plans 
for the proposed reorganization of 
the Fire Department. 

In its investigation your subcom- 
mittee has acted in close accord 
with the Fire Department.

The following is the report of the 
subcommittee submitted with the 
foregoing report: 

Chicago, December 29, 1913. 
To the Honorable Joseph F. Ryan, 
Chairman of the Committee on 
Schools, Fire, Police and Civil 

Service: 

Dear Sir — The undersigned sub- 
committee of the Committee on 
Schools, Fire, Police and Civil Ser- 
vice, to whom was referred the res- 
olution of the City Council passed 
on October 6, 1913, directing your 
committee to further investigate 
and report to the City Council a 
plan, for modernizing and improving 
the police stations of the city and 
providing for one or more separate 
police stations for women prisoners 
has, in close co-operation with the 
General Superintendent and First 
Deputy Superintendent or Police, 
investigated the matters referred to 
it and reports thereon as follows: 

Copy of the resolution referred to, 
with the preamble thereto, is at-' 
tached as Exhibit 1. 

Your subcommittee reiterates, 
with renewed conviction ,the con- 
clusions regarding existing police 
stations reached in its report of No- 
vember 18, 1912, on which was 
based the police reorganization or- 
dinance passed by the City Council 
December 30, 1912. The statements 
m that report were as follows : 



3332 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



January 5, 1914. 



U A very large proportion of the 
police business of the city is done in 
old, unsanitary stations, and the 
great majority of persons arrested 
confined in dark basement cells 
without water closets, with an open 
trough in rear flushed with running 
water. In such stations toilet pa- 
per is not furnished to prisoners. 
In several the cells for women (us- 
ually provided with toilet accom- 
modations) are in the same room 
with those for men. 

If the public demand a polite, 
gentlemanly, considerate and selt- 
respecting police service, they 
should provide the force with ade- 
quate quarters. The housing of 
wellpaid public servants in unsan- 
itary, illy heated and ventilated 
buildings is not economy. It is true 
that the mounted squad has made a 
splendid showing in spite of their 
inadequate quarters, but it must 
be borne in mind that time spent by 
them in quarters is short and none 
of them sleep there." 

Since the subcommittee's report 
of November 16, 1912, was submit- 
ted to and adopted by the whole 
committee, a careful investigation 
has been made which shows con- 
clusively that in the present police 
stations of the City of Chicago there 
exist 437 violations of the build- 
ing, health and fire prevention or- 
dinances of the City, and that the 
average age of the 49 police stations 
and police buildings is 24 years, 
ranging from 4 to over 51. Copy of 
the tabulation of this investigation 
is attached hereto as Exhibit 2. 

It will be noted from this that the 
City of Chicago is permitting in its 
police stations violations of 35 sec- 
tions of the city code, some as high 
as 45 violations of one section. For 
example, the table shows 35 instan- 
ces of violations of Section 256 re- 
lating to ventilation; 45 instances of 
violation of Section 269 relating to 
fire escapes; 39 instances of viola- 
tion of Section 667 (b), insufficient 
stairways; 45 violations of Section 
269, fire extinguishers; 18 violations 



of Section 1414, prisons to have 
proper ventilation; 23 violations 
of Section 1416, requiring adequate 
closets, and so on. 

Under no possible theory can the 
City of Chicago condone violations 
of its ordinances on its own part 
when it expects and requires com- 
pliance therewith by its citizens, nor 
can the voters and taxpayers es- 
cape equal responsibility therefor 
through failure to supply the nec- 
essary funds to put the matter of 
housing its servants and its wards 
above criticism. 

Humanitarianism and civic right- 
eousness demand that existing con- 
ditions which are intolerable be 
abated. Recent agitation as to ex- 
isting conditions has merely touched 
the surface. 

In view of the stern necessities 
of the situation your subcommittee 
presents a plan for "modernizing 
and improving the police stations 
of the City, and for providing one 
or more separate stations for wom- 
en prisoners." 

This plan is the providing of a 
bond issue for the following: 

1. Comprehensive, modern and 
sanitary housing conditions in every 
police station in the City, not only 
for the members of the force as- 
signed thereto, but particularly for 
each and every person detained 
therein, by the erection of modern 
stations and remodeling of available 
stations. 

2. The complete elimination ot 
all basement cell rooms and the sub- 
stitution of modern, light and san- 
itary cells. 

3. The separation of female 
from male prisoners through the 
establishment of independent sta- 
tions for women. 

4. A provision for public com- 
fort facilities in all the new sta- 
tions, and as far as possible in ex- 
isting stations which are to be re- 
tained under the plan. 

5. The retention and utilization

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES. 



3333 



of all modern and available stations 
with the establishment in outly- 
ing districts of temporary substa- 
tions at a moderate cost from whicl 
small detachments of mounted men 
may more adequately cover terri- 
tory which cannot now be properly 
covered by men on foot. 

6. A standard design for nev\ 
stations. 

7. New stations to be erected on 
side streets off street car and ele- 
vated lines, not only on account of 
lower value of property, but to 
eliminate noise and confusion in 
stations and the courts therein. 

8. The erection of a modern, 
permanent and central adminis- 
trative building for the department. 

General Plans. 

The plan proposed contemplates 
the retention of fourteen main sta- 
tions, new and modern, or available 
with reasonable repair; the erection 
of eighteen new main stations ana 
four substations; the utilization of 
two existing stations and the erec- 
tion of one new station for -women 
prisoners, and a new station for the 
mounted section of the traffic di- 
vision. 

Central Administrative Building. 

At the present time the executive 
quarters of the Police Department 
are located in ten offices and on five 
different floors of the city hall; the 
detective division is nearly a mile 
away from the identification section 
of this division, and the mounted 
and foot detachments of the traffic 
division more than a mile apart. It 
is impracticable to provide quarters 
within the "loop" for the mounted 
section of the traffic division, but the 
administrative headquarters of the 
department, except those of the 
General Superintendent, who as a 
member of the Mayor's cabinet, 
should remain in the city hall, 
should be concentrated in a central- 
ly located, modern building, with 
provisions for the Municipal Courts 



handling criminal and quasi-crim- 
inal cases. 

Your subcommittee after further 
consideration has come to the con- 
clusion that the land of the City 
at the southeast corner of the river 
and Madison street, while ideal as 
to size, shape and available light and 
air, is not suitable for a central po- 
lice station for the reason that it 
is on one of the most congested 
east-and-west streets of the City, 
and at a point where accessibility 
to it is difficult. 

This station should be so designed 
as to be a credit to the City jof Chi- 
cago, adopting the plan now com- 
mon in modern central stations of 
having the cell room on the top 
floor, with ample light and air, and 
the most modern sanitary conven- 
iences. A copy of the top floor cell 
house of the new San Francisco 
county and city prison is attached 
hereto as Exhibit 3, merely as a sug- 
gestion of what is possible in the 
matter of housing prisoners in a 
sanitary and humanitarian manner. 

Standard Designs. 

In the erection of new buildings a 
standard plan should be adopted, 
applicable as far as possible to each 
station built. In the selection of 
sites, corner lots off street car lines, 
but as near as possible to promi- 
nent transfer corners, should be ob- 
tained. Li|ght and air should be as- 
sured on all four sides. 

Future Station Sites. 

In the outlying large districts the 
City should now secure advantage- 
ously situated sites for future dis- 
trict stations and anticipate a cer- 
tain rise in value. These should be 
near cross section lines where con- 
centrated development, adequate 
transportation and increased popu- 
lation are strong probabilities. 

Emergency Hospitals. 

In the design of main stations, 
consideration should be given to the 
ultimate necessity for small emer-

gency hospitals in charge of the am- 
bulance division. 

Motor Drawn Vehicles. 

Within two years at the outside 
all stations except those in the out- 
lying territory will, in all likeli- 
hood, be equipped with motor 
drawn apparatus. Reserve appara- 
tus should be provided and new sta- 
tions be so arranged that the change 
from horse to motor may be made 
with the least possible expense. 

Public Comfort Facilities. 

Every new station should be pro- 
vided with public comfort facilities 
for both men and women, accessible 
from the street. The elimination 
of the basement cells will release 
ample room in the basement of each 
building for this purpose. 

Gymnasium Requirements. 

Each station should be equipped 
with a reasonable amount of gym- 
nasium equipment, and the same 
should be furnished by the City. 
The present method of saddling 
upon the men assigned to each sta- 
tion the cost of furnishing the gym- 
nasium is unjust and unfair. In 
like manner, each station should be 
provided with an ample revolver 
range. 

Stations for Women* 

Three such stations are sug- 
gested : 

1. For the south and southwest 
sides, the present Cottage Grove 
Avenue station; if the plan of sep- 
arate stations is adhered to in the 
future it will be necessary to lo- 
cate another station for women far- 
ther south, but the present quarters 
allotted to women in the Hyde Park 
station will answer the purpose for 
some time to come. 

2. A new and modern station in 
the vicinity of Washington boule- 
vard between Racine and Ashland 
avenues. 

3. The present 39th precinct 
station (Hudson avenue). This sta- 
tion is new and modern, but it is too 
small and not well located as a gen- 



eral station for the proposed 30th 
district, and with some remodeling, 
will be ideal for the purpose. 

In connection with the women's 
stations, it must be taken into con- 
sideration that they will supple- 
ment the regular stations and pro- 
vide a place where complaints can 
be received which can be trans- 
mitted to the main station of the 
district. 

Proposed Bond Issue. 

It is estimated that it will be 
necessary to raise by bond issue 
the sum of $2,500,000 to carry out 
the proposed plan. When once 
completed, current revenue will 
provide sufficient funds for neces- 
sary extension for many years to 
come. 

Your subcommittee therefore rec- 
ommends the following: 

That the Finance Committee in- 
clude in the 1914 budget a provis- 
ion for the appropriation of a sum 
not less than $2,500,000 for the pur- 
chase of new sites and the erection 
of new stations for the police de- 
partment along the general lines set 
forth above.

department of police, contingent 
upon a bond issue aggregating $2,- 
247,750, which was defeated at the 
polls in the spring election of that 
year for the reason, it is believed, 
that neither the press nor the pub- 
lic was sufficiently informed as to 
the needs of the department; and 

Whereas, On November 18, 1912, 
a subcommittee of the Committee 
on Schools, Fire, Police and Civil 
Service, after a painstaking inves- 
tigation of every police station in 
the City of Chicago reported in sub- 
stance that the police department 
was maintaing 46 police stations, 9 
of which were new, modern and am- 
ple; 10 in fair condition or at a 
comparatively small cost could be 
made so; and that the remaining 22 
were old, antiquated, unsanitary, 
unsuitable and in general a dis- 
grace to the City of Chicago; that

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 12, 1914. 



Communications from the Mayor, 
Comptroller, Commissioner of 
Public Works and All Other 
City Officers, Departments and 
Branches of the City Government. 

The Clerk presented a report sub- 
mitted by His Honor the Mayor, 
containing a list of the names of 
persons released by him from the 
House of Correction during the week 
ended January 10, 1914, together 
with the cause* of each release, 
which was ordered 

Placed on file. 

also, 

The following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor, [ 
Chicago, January 12, 1914.J 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith 
without my approval an ordinance 
passed by your Honorable Body on 
January 5, 1914, and appearing on 
page 3355 of the Journal of the Pro- 
ceedings of the City Council of that 
date. 

The said ordinance is a general 
ordinance requiring every person, 
firm or corporation operating an 
elevated railroad to construct and 
maintain platforms, stations or 
landing places for the purpose of 
receiving or discharging passengers 
at such other point or points Be- 
sides those now in use as the City 
Council may from time to time pre- 
scribe. 

The said ordinance is altogether 
too vague to serve the purposes for 
which it is intended. In case sta- 
tions are ordered on public streets it 
is doubtful whether they may be 
erected without new frontage con- 
sents being obtained, since the or- 
iginal frontage consents authorize 
only the construction of such sta- 
tions as were named in the original 
ordinances. Moreover, the said or- 
dinance does not make mention of 
any questions that have arisen in- 
volving the rights of elevated rail- 
roads in the streets, nor does it con- 
tain a saving clause which will pro- 
tect the City in case it is construed 



as an affirmance of the right to 
maintain stations now existing. 

I am also informed by the law de- 
partment that the said ordinance 
will not be enforced because it does 
not fix a rule of conduct to be fol- 
lowed, but leaves it in the discre- 
tion of the City Council to designate 
places where stations shall be lo- 
cated. 

I therefore recommend that the 
vote by which the said ordinance 
was passed be reconsidered and that 
the same be re-referred to your 
Committee on Local Transportation. 

Yours Respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Powers moved to reconsider 
the vote by which said ordinance, 
vetoed by His Honor the Mayor, was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Powers moved to refer said 
ordinance to the Committee on Lo- 
cal Transportation. 

The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor, [ 
Chicago, January 12, 1914.J 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith 
without my approval an order 
passed by your Honorable Body at 
its meeting of January 5, 1914, di- 
recting the Commissioner of Build- 
ings not to issue a permit for the 
erection of a building at 1801-1807 
Belmont avenue, to be used as an 
iron works or blacksmith shop, for 
the reason that Section 712 of The 
Chicago Code of 1911 expressly 
specifies the various businesses for 
the maintenance of- which frontage 
consents of adjacent property-own- 
ers are necessary. A general ordi- 
nance may not be set aside by a 
special order. 

In this case, whether frontage 
consents be necessary will depend 
upon whether a majority of the

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

buildings on both sides of the street 
in the block in question are used for 
residence purposes or not. This is 
a question of fact, and the Building 
Commissioner in considering an ap- 
plication for a permit must be gov- 
erned by the facts. 

For these reasons I would re- 
spectfully recommend that the vote 
by which the order was passed be 
reconsidered and that the same be 
placed on file. 

Yours Respectfully, 
(Signed^ Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Aid. Littler moved to reconsider 
the vote by which said order, ve- 
toed by His Honor the Mayor, was 
passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Littler moved to place said 
order on file. 

The motion prevailed. 

ALSO, 

The following communication: 

Office of the Mayor, [ 
Chicago, January 12, 191 4. j 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I hand you herewith 
an ordinance amending certain por- 
tions of the ordinance creating the 
Harbor and Subway Commission of 
the City of Chicago, passed Decem- 
ber 4, 1911, and recommend to your 
Honorable Body the passage thereof 
without the usual reference to a 
Committee. 

I also hand you herewith a copy 
of an opinion which I have this day 
received from the Corporation 
Counsel. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

The following opinion of the Cor- 
poration Counsel was submitted 
with the foregoing communication: 

Chicago, January 12, 1914. 
Eon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor: 

Dear Sir — We invite your atten- 
tion to the contract which was re- 



cently entered into between the City 
and the Great Lakes Dredge and 
Dock Company, the City acting 
through its Harbor and Subway 
Commission. This contract pro- 
vided that the work should be done 
under the supervision of the Har- 
bor and Subway Commission, and 
that all certificates for payment to 
be made by the City to the contrac- 
tor under the terms of the contract 
should be issued by the commission. 
As you will observe, therefore, it 
becomes necessary to keep a Harbor 
and Subway Commission in being. 
" The Harbor and Subway Commis- 
sion is created by an ordinance 
passed December 4, 1911, and ap- 
pearing in the Journal of the City 
Council of said date at page 1905. 
Section 1 of the ordinance creating 
this commission provides that it 
shall consist of three members and 
a secretary to be appointed by the 
Mayor with the approval and con- 
firmation of the City Council, and 
further provides that the members 
of the commission shall be compe- 
tent and experienced engineers, and 
that the City Engineer of the City of 
Chicago may be appointed as one 
of the members of said commission. 
Section 5 of the ordinance in 
question provides that each com- 
missioner shall receive as compen- 
sation for his services the sum of 
Twelve Thousand ($12,000.00) Dol- 
lars per annum, provided, that in 
the event the City Engineer shall be 
appointed and confirmed as a mem- 
ber of said commission, he shall 
receive for his services, in addition 
to his salary of Eight Thousand 
($8,000.00) Dollars as City Engi- 
neer, the sum of Four Thousand 
($4,000.00) Dollars per annum, and 
that the secretary of the commis- 
sion shall receive as compensation, 
the sum of Four Thousand ($4,- 
000.00) Dollars per annum. 

If it is the intention of your Honor 
and the City Council to pay to the 
commissioners any compensation 
different from that mentioned in 
the ordinance above referred to, and 
the Appropriation Ordinance carry-

ing out such intention, expressly 
provides the specific amount which 
each commissioner shall receive, we 
are of the opinion that the Appro- 
priation Ordinance would consti- 
tute a repeal by implication pro 
tanto of the ordinance of December 
4, 1911. If, however, the Appropri- 
ation Ordinance is not sufficiently 
specific as to the item of salary to 
be paid to each commissioner it 
would probably then be advisable to 
have a specific amendment of Sec- 
tion 5 of the ordinance of December 
4, 1911, in order that it may har- 
monize with the Appropriation Or- 
dinance. 

Very truly yours,

Assistant Corporation Counsel.

ALSO, 

The following communication: 
Office of the Mayor, { 
Chicago, January 12, 191 4. j 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — In view of the fact 
that no bids were received in an T 
swer to the recent advertisement of 
the Harbor and Subway Commission 
for the construction of a compre- 
hensive subway system, the mem- 
bers of the Commission tendered me 
their resignations January 7, 1914, 
and the same were accepted by me 
on January 8th. 

It will be necessary, however, for 
the City to secure the services of a 
competent engineer, fully conver- 
sant with such construction, to plan 
for the superstructure on pier No. 2, 
on which a contract for the sub- 
tructure has been let. 

I understand it will take from 
three to four months to complete 
these plans, and prepare them for 
bidding. After the contracts for the 
superstructure are let, the City 
should also be represented by a 
thoroughly competent engineer dur- 
ing the construction period, in order 



January 12, 1914. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

that the work may be watched and 
strict compliance with the specifi- 
cations secured. 

Since accepting the resignations 
of the members of the Commission, 
I have learned that the contract for 
the substructure made with the 
Great Lakes Company, placed the 
supervision of the work in the 
hands of the Harbor and Subway 
Commission. 

It will, therefore, be necessary to 
continue the life of the Commis- 
sion, in order that the proper scru- 
tiny over the work may be main- 
tained. Because of these facts, and 
by virtue of the authority con- 
ferred upon me by law, I therefore 
appoint the City Comptroller, Jonn 
E. Traeger, as a member of the 
Harbor and Subway Commission to 
succeed James J. Reynolds; Com- 
missioner of Public Works, L. E. 
McGann, as a member of the Har- 
bor and Subway Commission to 
succeed John E. Ericson, and E. C. 
Shankland as a member of the Har- 
bor and Subway Commission to 
succeed himself, and respectfully 
ask the concurrence of your Hon- 
orable Body. 

Yours respectfully,

Mayor.

Counsel to prepare and submit to

the following order, appearing in 
the Journal of the City 'Council, 
page 3237 :

January 12, 1914. 



"Ordered, Tha't the Corporation 
Counsel be and he is hereby di- 
rected to investigate the question 
as to whether the City may, by 
ordinance, prohibit smoking in the- 
aters during the performances, and 
if so, then the Corporation Counsel 
is directed to prepare and submit 
to the Council, an ordinance pro- 
hibiting smoking in theaters dur- 
ing performances." 

As a police regulation in the in- 
terest of the good order and well 
being of the community, an ordi- 
nance prohibiting smoking in the- 
aters during performances appears 
to be reasonable. 

We direct your attention to Sec- 
tion 326b of an ordinance Creating 
a Bureau of Fire Prevention and 
Public Safety, passed July 22, 
1912 (Council Journal page 1617), 
which provides in effect that the 
Chief of Fire Prevention and Pub- 
lic Safety may prohibit smoking in 
any building if in his opinion the 
occupancy of same is such as to 
make it hazardous to permit smok- 
ing therein. The validity of this 
provision is very questionable since 
the rendition of the opinion by our 
Supreme Court on December 17, 
1913, in the case of Sheldon v. 
Hoyne, in which the Gas Safety 
Appliance Act was held unconstitu- 
tional for the reason that it dele- 
gated authority to the fire marshal 
and therefore was not uniform in 
its operation. 

It is a matter of common knowl- 
edge that although theaters are 
now required to be of fire proof 
construction wherefore the danger 
of destructive fire is minimized, 
yet the probability of injury or loss 
of life by fire itself is not compar- 
able with the probability of same 
from possible panics started by, 
perhaps but a small blaze. It needs 
no argument to support the con- 
clusion that the chances of such a 
blaze starting are greatly increased 
if smoking is permitted. 

We are of the opinion that the 
Iraft of an ordinance submitted 



herewith is reasonable and that it 
is within the power of the city to 
enact and enforce the same. 
Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Loring R. Hoover, 

Assistant Corporation Counsel.

Board of Education,) 
Chicago, January, 12, 1914.) 

To the Honorable the Mayor and the 
Aldermen of the City of Chicago, 
in City Council Assembled: 
Gentlemen — The Board of Edu- 
cation of the City of Chicago, at 
a special meeting held this after- 
noon, January 12th, 1914, adopted 
the following motion: 

"I move that the statement of the 
Attorney be received; printed in 
the Proceedings and that the pre«s 
be requested to print the same in 
full, and that a committee as there- 
in requested be appointed to in- 
vestigate the matters therein re- 
ferred to in the Tribune article of 
January 11th, and to report back 
to the Board at the earliest pos- 
sible moment; that said committee 
be comprised of the five members 
of the Board and three persons who 
are not members to be named by 
the President of the Board." 

The statement of the Attorney 
referred to in said motion is pre- 
sented herewith. The Committee

W. Gindele, President of the 
Building Construction Employers'

In the interest of the public 
school system of the City, request 
is made that you cause the enclosed 
statement to ne read at the Coun- 
cil meeting this evening. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Peter Reinberg, 
President of the Board of Educa- 
tion. 

The following is the statement 
transmitted with the foregoing 
communication : 

January 12, 1914. 
To the Hon. Peter Reinberg, Pres- 
ident, and Members of the Board 
of Education, City of Chicago: 
Yours is the right to have an- 
swered, and mine is the duty to 
answer — in so far as my knowledge 
goes — "a story" (as Mr. J. Keeley, 
General Manager of the Chicago 
Tribune, indulgently calls it), 
printed in that paper on Sunday, 
January 11th, 1914. 

On December 31st, 1913, as I was 
leaving my office to attend the 
Board meeting, two individuals 
entered, and announced that they 
were Tribune reporters. Results 
have proved that they were es- 
pecially and well chosen for the 
work in hand. They were looking 
for something wrong — something 
bad. They wanted to besmirch the 
present administration of the school 
system. Their motive was both 
political and sinister. Their atti- 
tude, their every line of inquiry, 
their every question, supplemented 
by the "story" with its ruthless and 
wilfull attempted character wreck- 
ing, established this. The facts and 
the truth, when they did not suit 
their purpose, have been ignored 
and distorted to do so. I realize, of 
course, that they were but tools. 



and doing only the bidding of their 
employers, but I hoped they would 
report the facts and that their em- 
ployers, if they did not wish to 
give credit to the Board for the ad- 
ministration of this branch of its 
duties, would at least not attack it 
wrongfully. I, therefore, gave these 
men about an hour's time. 

They first inquired as to how the 
Board acquired its property. I ad- 
vised them it was either by direct 
purchase or by condemnation pro- 
ceedings; that the first step was a 
recommendation- by the Superin- 
tendent of Schools that educational 
needs in a particular locality de- 
manded a site be located therein; 
that the Sites Committee, a sub- 
committee of the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds, aided by the 
Superintendent and the Business 
Manager, decided upon the exact 
site to be acquired; that the ad- 
ministrative department of the 
Board then ascertained the owners 
of the site and negotiated with 
them for the purchase; that if a 
satisfactory price was agreed upon 
between them and concurred in by 
the Buildings and Grounds Com- 
mittee, it was reported to and 
adopted by the Board and trans- 
mitted to the City Council for its 
concurrence; that after such con- 
currence, the entire proceeding and 
documents were transmitted to me 
(and this was the first knowledge 
I had of the proposed direct pur- 
chase) for the purpose of seeing 
that clear title was vested properlv 
in the City of Chicago, in trust for 
the use of schools, upon the pay- 
ment of the purchase price; that 
such was the detail of a direct pur- 
chase. As to the acquirement un- 
der condemnation, the form was the 
same down to the point where 
negotiations between the owner 
and the Board ended in disagree- 
ment instead of agreement, where- 
upon the Board ordered the site 
condemned and transmitted a copy 
of its action to the Council with re- 
quest for concurrence; that after 
such concurrence, the entire file 



3378 



COMMUNICATIONS. ETC. 



Januarv 12. 1914, 



was transmitted to me (and this 
was the first knowledge I had of 
the proposed condemnation pro- 
ceeding) for the purpose of acquir- 
ing the property under the Emi- 
nent Domain Law; that I proceeded 
to settle title questions and cause 
the suit to be instituted; then se- 
cured opinions of value from ex- 
pert real estate men and builders, 
the former being two or more in 
number, one or more of whom were 
local men and all of whom gave 
written opinions, with reasons, and 
accompanied them with a list of all 
transactions in the nature of sales 
in the neighborhood for a period of 
years, and also furnished the tax 
valuations on the property; that 
from all of this information I was 
enabled to know the value of the 
property and to determine what 
was the just and reasonable price 
the Board should pay for it and be 
fair both to the public and the 
owners; that if the owners or their 
representatives were willing to ac- 
cept such price an agreed verdict 
was entered, thus saving the time 
and money of both owners and the 
public; that if the owners were not 
willing to accept such price, then 
the jury would have to decide the 
amount after contest. 

The foregoing information was 
illustrated in minute detail by 
reference to and examination of the 
files in typical causes. 

These men then asked what per- 
centage of the property acquired in 
condemnation was by agreement 
and what was contested. I in- 
formed them that when I first 
started acquiring property for the 
Board, about ninety-nine per cent 
of all properties was acquired 
through contest; that it was uni- 
versally the fact, and has been so 
during the entire fifteen years and 
more I have been entrusted with 
the duty of so securing property 
for the Board, that the juries ac- 
cept the position of the Board on 
values and the verdicts were in the 
Board's favor, the owner getting no 
more than he or she had been of- 



fered by me, based upon the infor- 
mation I had secured; in conse- 
quence of which it became gener- 
ally known by attorneys, real es- 
tate men and owners that it was 
apparently useless to attempt to get 
from the Board of Education higher 
values for the property than those 
which could be secured in the open 
market between individuals, and 
owners have now, in at least 
seventy-five per cent of the cases, 
finally accepted my offers for their 
property, based upon the evidence 
secured by me as aforesaid. This 
is always done grudgingly and with 
much objection, the complaint be- 
ing that the Board does not pay for 
the property it secures even the 
market value thereof. 

I was next asked in reference to 
how witnesses were secured, and I 
advised by my selection. In this 
regard, it is a fact that it is very 
difficult for the Board to secure 
good real estate experts, because of 
the smallness of the compensation 
paid them. It makes no difference 
whether a site is composed of two 
pieces of property or forty pieces 
of property, all the real estate ex- 
pert gets for his examination and 
report on the value is $25.00, and 
he is compelled to give his written 
opinion, with reasons, and to go 
over the record of all transactions 
and report the same with his 
opinion. The Mr. Smith referred 
to in the "story" has rendered 
opinions in four sites and has one 
more site upon which to report. 

I was next asked in reference to 
the Sites Committee— what my con- 
nection with it was — and I ad- 
vised that it was a sub-committee 
of the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds of the Board of Education; 
that I knew nothing about its ac- 
tivities or investigations, and had 
no duties which in any wise con- 
nected me with it; that I had no 
information as to what it did until 
months after its activities in each 
instance were terminated and the 
matter involved had passed through 
the Buildings and Grounds Com-

mittee, the Board of Education and 
the City Council. 

. I was then interrogated in much 
detail as to what opportunity the 
Sites Committee had of informing 
persons as to its proposed actions 
and how long a period there was 
between the time that it decided 
upon a site and the owner of the 
site would be advised as to its con- 
templated acquirement by the-. 
Board. As to the former, I ad- 
vised I could not say, and as to the 
latter, that it was my understand- 
ing immediately the Sites Com- 
mittee decided upon a location, the 
administrative department of the 
Board at once ascertained the 
ownerships and communicated with 
the owners, advising that the Board 
contemplated purchasing the prop- 
erty. 

I was then asked what my posi- 
tion would be if an examination of 
my files were desired, and I stated 
that they were open for any and 
every examination which might be 
desired; that those in my office and 
myself would gladly aid in furnish- 
ing any information or in furnish- 
ing any files any one might desire 
to examine. 

The two men then arose and left 
the office, apparently disgruntled 
and unsatisfied, having found noth- 
ing but willingness to give any and 
all information desired and to aid 
in any possible investigation into 
the mode of acquiring property by 
the Board through this office and 
the facts in connection therewith. 
They departed silently, without 
thanks or expression of any kind, 
and they not once during the entire 
time referred to any site. Their 
inquiries were all in the abstract, 
and no reference whatsoever was 
made or inquiry directed toward 
either the so-called Rissman direct 
purchase or the acquirement under 
condemnation of part of the site 
located at 15th street, Lawndale 
avenue, Ridgeway avenue and. 
Douglas boulevard. They knew the 
files in both were here, but did not 



seek enlightenment thereon. I 
have not heard from either of these 
men since. 

The next I heard of the matter 
was through the following letter, 
received by me on Saturday morn- 
ing, January 10th: 

"THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE 
THE WORLD'S GREATEST NEWSPAPER. 

OFFICE OF THE 
GENERAL MANAGER. 

Chicago, Jan. 8, 1914. 
Angus R. Shannon, Esq., Attorney, 

Board of Education, Tribune 

Building, Chicago, III: 

My Dear Mr. Shannon — On Sun- 
day The Tribune will print a story 
in which your name appears sev- 
eral times. 

If you will be good enough to call 
on Mr. Beck, the managing editor, 
at four o'clock on Saturday after- 
noon, he will show you proofs of 
the story, thus enabling you to 
make any statement in connection 
therewith that you may desire. 

Yours respectfully, 

J. Keeley, 
JK:GFS General Manager." 

to which I replied as follows: 

"January 10, 1914. 
James Keeley, Esq., General Man- 
ager, The Chicago Tribune Co.: 
My dear Mr. Keeley — Yours of 
the 8th inst. received this morning. 
I regret that I have an engagement 
which prevents my seeing Mr. Beck 
this afternoon. I would be very 
glad, if you desire, to go over the 
proofs of the article which you say 
will appear in your paper tomor- 
row, if you can send the copy to 
my office before one o'clock. 
Yours very truly, 

Angus Roy Shannon." 

I received no reply to my com- 
munication. 

The two specific instances of the

acquirement of property mentioned 
in the "story" are as follows: 

First, that under which a part of 
the site at Lawndale avenue, Ridge- 
way avenue, Douglas boulevard and 
15th street was acquired under con- 
demnation, and second, the site at 
Fillmore street, Mozart street and 
Francisco avenue, by direct pur- 
chase. The facts in connection 
with the acquirement of these two 
pieces are as follows: 

First: Ridgeway avenue and 
Douglas boulevard. The two com- 
munications which follow, sent by 
me, one to the Committee on Sites 
and the other to the Committee on 
Buildings and Grounds, are entirely 
self-explanatory and furnish all the 
information I have on the subject. 
"July 11, 1913. 

Committee on Sites, Board of Edu- 
cation: 

Gentlemen — Since the Board or- 
dered the acquirement of the site 
at Douglas boulevard, W. 15th 
street, Lawndale and Ridgeway 
avenues, I have been holding innu- 
merable conferences with the own- 
ers of part thereof, who have urged 
upon me the necessity of immediate 
settlement in this matter because of 
building operations they had. started 

in and also because the land is in a 
very active and rising market and 
they claim great loss by reason of 
delay. 

I have been able, through urgent 
action, to get the proceeding filed 
in court, and I have propositions 
from Joseph D. Weisskopf to sell 
Lots Six (6), Seven (7), Eleven 
(11) and Twelve (12), the latter 
being the corner lot at 15th street 
and Lawndale avenue, for $17,- 
750.00, from Julius M. Weisskopf to 
sell Lot Eight (8) and the North 
half of Lot Nine (9), being 75 feet 
on Lawndale avenue, for $5,675.00, 
and from Adolph Ball to sell Lot 
Ten (10) and the South half of Lot 
Nine (9), being 75 feet on Lawn- 
dale avenue, for $5,675.00. 

Accompanying the propositions is 



a letter signed by the two Weiss- 
kopfs, both on behalf of them- 
selves and the owner of the other 
property, setting forth that up to 
the present time the actual expense 
to them on building plans, loans 
and contracts has been $3,500.00; 
that it will increase unless the mat- 
ter is closed at once, and that they 
make the propositions of settle- 
ment only on condition that they be 
accepted immediately. I, there- 
fore, submit the same to you, with 
request for instructions as to 
whether or not I will permit a ver- 
dict to be entered for these lots for 
the amounts stated. 

Submitted herewith are the 
propositions and letter, together 
with such other data as I have in 
reference to the values. 

Yours very truly, 
Angus Roy Shannon, 

Attorney." 

The letter above mentioned as 
enclosed reads as follows: 

"July 8, 1913. 
Mr. Angus Roy Shannon, Attorney 

for the Board of Education: 

Dear Sir — As we have stated to 
you heretofore in our several con- 
ferences, the actual expense to us 
for plans, arrangements for loan 
and contracts for building, amounts 
to $3,500.00. This includes the 
building operations on Lots 6, 7, 
11 and 12 in the name of Joseph R. 
Weisskopf and Lots 8, 9 and 10 of 
Julius Weisskopf and Adolph Ball. 

The proposed acquirement of 
the property by the Board puts us 
in a very embarrassing position, 
and unless we can secure our mon- 
ey at once, the expense will be 
much greater to us. We therefore 
limit the proposal that we hand you 
herewith to be accepted imme- 
diately, and it is only on that con- 
dition that Joseph Weisskopf will 
accept $17,750.00 and each of the 
others $5,675.00. Please advise us 
at the earliest opportunity. 
Yours truly, 

Joseph Weisskopf. 
Julius Weisskopf."

My second letter is: 

"July 14, 1913. 
Committee on Buildings and 

Grounds, Board of Education of 

the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Condemnation pro- 
ceeding Gen. No. 323682 in the Cir- 
cuit Court of Cook County, entitled 

'CITY OF CHICAGO, IN TRUST FOR THE 

use of schools, vs. gage, et al,' was 
filed in court on Thursday, the 10th 
inst. This is the site at Ridgeway 
avenue, Douglas boulevard, Lawn- 
dale avenue and 15th street, and 
is one of the emergency matters 
which I have been ordered to ad- 
vance. 

Among the owners at this site 
are Julius M. Weisskopf, the owner 
of Lot Eight (8), and the North half 
of Lot Nine (9) ; Joseph R. Weiss- 
kopf, the owner of Lots Six (6), 
Seven (7), Eleven (11) and Twelve 
(12), and Adolph Ball, the owner 
of Lot Ten (10) and the South half 
of Lot Nine (9). These gentlemen 
presented to me their claim for 
stopping building operations, and 
offered to settle under an agreed 
verdict at the prices hereinafter 
named, if the same were done im- 
mediately. Under date of July 11th, 
I presented the facts to the Com- 
mittee on Sites of the Board of 
Education, and by it was directed 
to proceed under the offers of set- 
tlement, which I have done. 

In this proceeding, together with 
other property, Lots Six (6), Seven 
(7), Eight (8), Nine (9), Ten (10), 
Eleven (11) and Twelve (12) in 
Block One (1) in Bond's Addition to 
Chicago, a Subdivision of the West 
half of the South East quarter of 
the North West quarter of Section 
Twenty-three (23), Township 
Thirty-nine (39) North, Range 
Thirteen (13) East of the Third 
Principal Meridian, are condemned. 
Said lots have a frontage of 50 feet 
each on Lawndale avenue, by a 
depth of 125 feet, to a 16 foot alley, 
Lot Twelve (12) being at the north- 
west corner of 15th street and 
Lawndale avenue. The jury award- 



ed the owners the following sums: 

To the owner of and par- 
ties interested in Lots 
6, 7, 11 and 12 afore- 
said, the sum of $17,750.00 

To the owner of and par- 
ties interested in Lot 8 
and the N. % of Lot 9 
aforesaid, the sum of. . 5,675.00 

To the owner of and par- 
ties interested in Lot 10 
' and the S. % of Lot 9 
aforesaid, the sum of. . 5,675.00 

Costs of suit 3.00 



Total . 



$29,103.00 



This verdict having been agreed 
on as aforesaid, I recommend that 
a warrant be drawn in the sum of 
$29,103.00, payable to the County 
Treasurer of Cook County, for the 
use of the respondents in the case. 
Upon the payment of the said 
amount to the County Treasurer a 
good title to the above described 
property will vest in the city of 

CHICAGO, IN TRUST FOR THE USE OF 

schools, for the uses and purposes 
set forth in the petition filed in 
said cause. 

Yours very truly, 

Angus Roy Shannon, 

Attorney/' 

Second: In reference to the di- 
rect purchase of seventeen lots at 
iFillmore, Mozart and Francisco 
avenue, the facts are that this site 
was ordered acquired by the Com- 
mittee on Buildings and Grounds by 
direct purchase. There were lo- 
cated on these lots two new brick 
and stone two tier apartment build- 
ings, each containing front and 
rear flats, in all comprising twenty- 
four separate occupancies. It was 
reported to the Committee that 
there was urgent need for the im- 
mediate acquirement of this land, 
both because of educational de- 
mands and also because of the very 
active building operations going on 
in this particular locality. The 
manner in which the price agreed 
to be paid was fixed between the 



3382 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 12, 1914. 



owner and the Committee on Build- 
ings and Grounds was as follows: 
The price of all of the land, to- 
gether with the improvements, was 
fixed at eighty-three thousand dol- 
lars, and the owner then pur- 
chased back from the Board the im- 
provements on the site for the 
sum of twenty thousand dollars, 
(the value of said buildings, ac- 
cording to cost, being about $48,000 
and the experience of the Board 
being that in selling improvements 
on property it receives but about 
one-sixth of the value thereof), 
thus making the net price to the 
Board of sixty-three thousand dol- 
lars, for a frontage of 239.6 feet on 
Francisco avenue, and a frontage of 
214.6 feet on Mozart street, by a 
depth of 125.52 feet m each in- 
stance. The owner agreed to re- 
move the improvements within 
such time as the Board specified or 
to forfeit five thousand dollars, 
which the Board retained of the 
purchase price. A photograph of 
the 'buildings involved is herewith 
transmitted. 

My duties in connection with this 
transaction did not commence until 
after it had passed the Committee, 
passed the Board, and been con- 
curred in by the City Council, al- 
though I was present at the meeting 
of the Committee on Buildings and 
Grounds at the time it was decided 
to acquire the property, and on its 
request filled in the proposal of sale 
form used by the Board in such in- 
stances. What is meant by the 
statement in the "story" that I 0. 
K.'d the order for the payment of 
the sixty-three thousand dollars, 1 
do not know, unless it is that when 
the title had been perfected in the 
Board and the delivery of the war- 
rant was due to the seller, I at his 
request 0. K.'d his signature so that 
he might be identified by the City 
Treasurer when he presented the 
warrant for payment. 

Whether or not justly so, it is a 
fact that I am proud of the manner 
in which the duties of the Board 



of Education imposed upon me have 
been performed. For more than 
fifteen years I have had the control 
of the acquirement of the property 
of the Board taken under condem- 
nation proceedings, and during that 
time have suffered no reverse in 
court, nor made any settlement out 
of court excepting upon the figures 
of well qualified experts employed 
by the Board and substantiated by 
the facts in connection with the 
value of the property to be taken. 
During the same period I have had 
the duty of seeing that good, mer- 
chantable title was vested in the 
Board upon the payment of the 
purchase price, wherever it had 
ordered the property acquired 
through direct purchase. Never up 
to the present time has there ever 
been any question raised in refer- 
ence to tfie things done by this of- 
fice, or the prices which the Board 
was required to pay for the prop- 
erty acquired through condemna- 
tion proceedings. Now the Chicago 
Tribune, after learning that it 
could acquire information of all the 
facts incident to two transactions, 
deliberately refrained from doing 
so, and then unconscionably, in a 
"story, 1 ' by insinuation and in- 
nuendo, attempts to discredit this 
office and to leave in the minds of 
the public an impression that there 
is something wrong in connection 
therewith. 

In justice to the Board of Edu- 
cation of this city and the public 
school system which, it administers, 
in justice to my conscientious, able 
and hard-working assistants in the 
performance of the duties entrusted 
to me, in justice to myself, and that 
the truth may be known, I respect- 
fully demand that a thorough, com- 
plete and exhaustive investigation 
be made into each and every of the 
details and facts in any wise con- 
nected with the acquirement of 
property under condemnation pro- 
ceedings or direct purchase, with

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 16, 1914. 



Communications from the Mayor, 
Comptroller, Commissioner of 
Public Works and All Other 
City Officers, Departments and 
Branches of the City Government. 

The Clerk presented the follow- 
ing communication submitted by 
His Honor the Mayor, which was, 
together with the communication 
and the ordinances transmitted 
therewith, referred to the Commit- 
tee on Schools, Fire, Police and 
Civil Service: 

Office of the Mayor, [ 
January 16, 1914.} 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I have the honor to 
transmit herewith two ordinances, 
prepared by the Law Department 
and amending the Chicago Code of 
1911, as subsequently amended, 
dealing with the rank of First Class 
Detective Sergeant in the Police 
Department, and also with the as- 
signing to special duty, requiring 
citizen's dress, of certain men in 
the Police Department, other than 
those previously provided for. 

Under the so-called Police Re- 
organization Ordinance no provision 
was made permitting the Chief of 
Detectives and Lieutenants of De- 
tectives to wear citizen's dress. It 
is absolutely necessary at times for 
these Commanding Officers to wear 
citizen's dress in performance of 
their duties. The amendments sug- 
gested provide for this. They also 
provide for the wearing of citi- 
zen's dress by a limited number of 
officers assigned to special duty by 
the General Superintendent of Po- 
lice. 

In order that this privilege may 
not be subject to abuse, the amend- 
ment suggested restricts the wear- 
ing of citizen's dress on this assign- 
ment to not more than six officers 
at a time, and provides further that 
no policeman so assigned shall re- 
main on such special duty for more 
than sixty consecutive days. 

The amendment provides for the 
wearing of citizen's dress by officers 



assigned to special duty in the office 
of the State's Attorney of Cook 
County. 

At the time the Police Re-organ- ] 
ization Ordinance was passed and the 
rank of First Class Detective Ser- 
geant created, it was provided that 
all Detective Sergeants, Patrol Ser- 
geants and Desk Sergeants, whether 
appointed by Civil Service or wheth- 
er holdovers in the department, who 
were at the time Of the passage of 
the ordinance assigned to Detective 
duty in the Detective Bureau, should 
be classed as First Class Detective 
Sergeants. After the passage of the 
ordinance my attention was directed 
by the Civil Service Commission 
and the Law Department, to the 
fact that thirty-six officers holding 
the rank of Detective Sergeant by 
virtue of Civil Service examination 
and promotion, from time to time 
had been transferred from the De- 
tective Bureau to outlying stations, 
where they were serving either as 
Patrol Sergeants or as Desk Ser- 
geants. I was then advised that un- 
der the law these men were entitled 
to rank as First Class Detective Ser- 
geants. The Police Re-organization 
Ordinance, however, limited the 
number of those who could hold 
rank as First Class Detective Ser- 
geants to those specifically pro- 
vided for by it. Provision for the 
Detective Sergeants who had been 
transferred from the Bureau was, 
therefore, postponed until the pres- 
ent time, when the consideration 
of the Annual Appropriation Bill . 
would care for them. 

In order that there may be nol 
misunderstanding in regard to their 
rank, one of the attached amenda- 
tory ordinances provides that all 
Sergeants of Police, who, prior to 
December 30th, 1912, were ap- 
pointed pursuant to certification by 
the Civil Service Commission as 
Detective Sergeants, shall rank as 
First Class Detective Sergeants. 

The Annual Appropriation Bill, as 
prepared by the Finance Commit- 
tee, provides for 96 First Class De- 



January 16, 1914.

tective Sergeants. This number it 
will be necessary to raise to 104 
First Glass Detective Sergeants, to 
care for those at present in the 
service. 

I would respectfully suggest the 
reference of the two attached 
amendatory ordinances and of the 
communication of the Law Depart- 
ment, to your Committee on Schools, 
Fire, Police and Civil Service, for 
immediate consideration and re- 
port. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 
also, 

The following communication, 
which was, together with the com- 
munication and plan transmitted 
therewith, referred to the Commit- 
tee on Harbors, Wharves and 
Bridges : 

Office of the Mayor, [ 
Chicago, January 16, 1914.) 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen— I transmit herewith 
a communication from Murry Nel- 
son, Jr., together with a plan by E. 
H. Bennett, Architect of the Chi- 
cago Plan Commission, for new 
highways and a harbor in Lake 
Calumet. 

I would suggest the reference of 
the subject to an appropriate com- 
mittee for consideration. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor.

CHARTER CONVENTION. 

The select Committee on a Plan 
for a Charter Convention submitted 
the following report, which was, on 
motion of Aid. Capitain, deferred 
and ordered published: 



Chicago, January 16, 1914. 
To the Mayor and the City Council 

of the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Your Special Com- 
mittee on a New Charter for Chi- 
cago, appointed in pursuance of a 
resolution of the City Council passed 
on the 14th day of February, 1913, 
(Council Proceedings, page 3730), 
begs leave to report, that, with a 
view of broadening the Committee's 
scope of inquiry, suggestions were 
invited from sundry bodies and or- 
ganizations, which were repre- 
sented in the last preceding char- 
ter convention called by the City 
Council. An adequate solution of 
the complex problems presented, in- 
volved a careful study of means and 
methods by your Committee, and a 
number of meetings were held at 
which various phases of the sev- 
eral questions presented were dis- 
cussed. 

The findings of your committee 
are best summed up in the fol- 
lowing preamble and resolutions 
adopted at a meeting held on the 
16th day of January, 1914: 

Whereas, In the opinion of your 
Committee it is deemed imperative 
that Chicago's organic law should 
be so modified as to confer upon the 
residents of Chicago and its en- 
virons a greater degree of self gov- 
ernment, including greater control 
of her public utilities, and a com- 
plete rehabilitation of her revenue 
laws; and, 

Whereas, An adequate enlarge- 
ment of Chicago's Charter powers to 
an extent sufficiently comprehen- 
sive to permit a proper consolida- 
tion of the various taxing bodies in- 
cluded within the confines of the 
Sanitary District of Chicago and 
Cook County, requires amendment 
of the State Constitution; now, 
therefore, 

Resolved, That this committee 
recommend to the City Council that 
the Mayor be authorized to appoint 
a commission of thirty to be 
known as the Permanent Charter 



3452 



NEW BUSINESS BY WARDS. 



January 16, 1914. 



Commission, of which commission 
fifteen shall be members of the City 
Council, whose duty it shall be to 
devise ways and means to bring 
about proper amendments to the 
constitution aforesaid, and an ade- 
quate enlargement of the charter 
powers of Chicago, so as to permit 
the consolidation of the several mu- 
nicipalities and taxing bodies 
within the confines of Cook County 
and the Sanitary District of Chi- 
cago, and a proper revision and re- 
habilitation of our revenue laws. 

Resolved Further, That, pending 
the work of the Permanent Charter 
Commission as aforesaid, your 
Committee recommends that a con- 
solidation bill similar in principle 
to the one heretofore approved by 
the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago on the 22nd day of July, A. D. 
1912, (Journal of the Council Pro- 
ceedings, page 1644), be prepared 
and presented to the legislature by 
the said Permanent Charter Com- 
mission, as provided under the con- 
stitutional amendment of 1904, au- 
thorizing the consolidation of all 
taxing bodies lying wholly within 
the City of Chicago, such bill to 
contain a referendum clause and to 
provide for the levying of a single 
corporate tax in lieu of the numer- 
ous levies now made by the several 
taxing bodies, and further to pro- 
vide for an enlargement of the 
City's bonding power. 

Respectfully submitted,

tion to undergo such examination 
in order to obtain a license for such 
firm or corporation. The words

nection with such person or per- 
sons, so that no member of said

cluding the first year's license fee, 
shall be fifty dollars, and thereafter 
the annual license fee for such ma- 
son contractor or employing mason 
shall be twenty-five dollars ; said li- 
cense shall be valid and have force 
for a period of one year from the 
date of issuance, except as herein 
otherwise provided, and may be re-

nances of the city, such permit shall

passed by your Honorable Body at 
the meeting of January 12th direct- 
ing the Commissioner of Public 
Works to remove the water meter 
from the premises at 2201 West 
22nd street, for the reason that I 
am advised by the Superintendent 
of Water, in the communication 
herewith attached, that the removal 
of the meter would reduce the rev- 
enue of the city approximately 
$50.00 a year, and that the meter 
should not be removed. I would 
suggest a reconsideration of the 
vote by which the order was passed 
and its reference to your Committee 
on Water for investigation. 
Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor.

and figures, "Total (Corporate Pur- 
poses) . .$89,970.00"; 

Also, to correct said printed rec- 
ord further by striking out the

man", appearing as the fourth item 
on page 3565 of said record, and by 
inserting in lieu thereof the words, 
"Map Engineering Draftsman". 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. Win. J. Healy moved to ap- 
prove said printed record as cor- 
rected, as the Journal of the Pro- 
ceedings of said meeting, and to 
dispense with the reading of same. 

The motion prevailed. 



Communications from the Mayor, 
Comptroller, Commissioner of 
Public Works and All Other 
City Officers, Departments and 
Branches of the City Government. 

The Clerk presented a report sub- 
mitted by His Honor the Mayor, 
containing a list of the names of 
persons released by him from the 
House of Correction during the two 
weeks ended January 24, 1914, to- 
gether with the cause of each re- 
lease, which was ordered 

Placed on file. 

ALSO, 

The following veto message: 

Office of the Mayor, ( 
Chicago, January 24, 1914.J 
To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — Under the author- 
ity conferred upon me by law, I 
hereby submit my veto severally as 
to each of the following items of 
the annual appropriation bill, 
passed January 19, 1914, entitled 
"An ordinance making appropria- 
tions for Corporate, School, Public 
Library and Tuberculosis Sanitar- 
ium Purposes for the fiscal year 
from January 1, 1914, to December 
31, 1914": 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Mayor's Office" on page 
3489 of the Journal of the Proceed- 



ings of your Honorable Body for 
the meeting of January 19, 1914, 
reading : 

"Junior Examiner of 
Efficiency, 2 at $1,- 

500.00 3,000.00". 

My reason is that the Finance 
Committee granted my request for | 
two junior engineers. When the 
item was inserted it called for "Ex- 
aminers of Efficiency". This is not 
in accordance with my request; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Municipal Reference Li- 
brary", on the same page, read- 
ing: 
"Principal Cataloguer . $1,020.00". 
The intention is to acquire the 
services of a person competent to 
act as a medical librarian and this 
will necessitate the appropriation 
of at least $1,500.00; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "City Clerk", on page 3493 
of the Journal, reading: 
"15-A3 Extra clerk hire, 

Council Meetings ....240.00"; 
This appropriation is not neces- 
sary, inasmuch as the clerk who 
has been doing this work has been 
raised in grade from "Senior Clerk" 
to "Principal Clerk", and will not 
hereafter be employed as a regis- 
trar in addition, but will be paid 
for overtime at the regular rate of 
not to exceed 75 cents per hour 
from the appropriation for the pay- 
ment of overtime for regular em- 
ployes; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "City Collector", on page 
3505 of the Journal, reading: 
"24-A1 Overtime, Spe- 
cial Assessment work 
by extra and 'regular 
employes making de- 
linquent return to 
County Collector and 
other necessary emer- 
gency work when di- 
rected 8,650.00" 

and an item immediately following, 
reading : 



January 26, 1914. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



3661 



"24- A2 Extra clerk 
hire at not to ex- 
ceed $90 per month. 13,000.00". 

The City Collector claims and the 
City Comptroller concurs in the 
claim that these amounts are in- 
sufficient and I therefore recom- 
mend they be increased; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Supplies", 
on page 3508 of the same Journal, 
reading: 

"Feed Inspector, 2 at 

$1,560.00 3,120.00". 

The feed purchased by the De- 
partment of Supplies and the Fire 
Department is bought by contract, 
and the inspection of such feed can 
be arranged better under the Comp- 
troller's office than by the supply 
department, and I therefore deem it 
advisable to change these positions 
so that they will be under the audit 
division of the Comptroller's office; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Police — 
Office of Second Deputy Superin- 
tendent of Police", on page 3512 of 
the same Journal, reading: 

"Junior Clerk, 12 at 
$840.00 10,080.00". 

I am advised that two of the 
junior clerks appropriated for by 
this item are eligible to advance- 
ment, and should receive compen- 
sation at the rate of $960.00 per an- 
num before February 1, 1914, and it 
is therefore necessary to make ap- 
propriation for such advancement; 

An item appearing under the 
title "Municipal Court — Office of 
Bailiff of Municipal Court", on page 
3518 of the same Journal, reading: 

"31-G2 Purchase of fur- 
niture, fittings and li- 
brary 800.00". 

The Bailiff of this court says that 
in order properly to equip the new 
branch of this court at 47th and 
Halsted streets $200.00 more than 
the amount appropriated is needed; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "House of Correction", on 



page 3519 of the same Journal, 
reading: 

"Parole Investigator. . . 1,200.00". 

I am advised that the parole in- 
vestigator provided for by this ap- 
propriation is eligible to advance- 
ment from $1,020.00 to $1,080.00, 
and an appropriation for the latter 
amount should therefore be made 
instead of for $1,200.00; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Fire — Re- 
pair Shops", on page 3521 of the 
same Journal, reading: 

"Carpenters 3,443.00", 

The reason for vetoing this item 
is that the men employed in this 
bureau for the purpose for which 
appropriation was made are 
"wheelwrights" instead of "carpen- 
ters"; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Fire — Fire 
Alarm Telegraph — Main Office", on 
page 3522 of the same Journal, 
reading : 

"Junior Fire Alarm Op- 
erator, 4 at $1,- 
900.00 7,600.00"; 

Also an item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Fire — Fire 
Alarm Telegraph — Branch Office", 
on the same page, reading: 

"Junior Fire Alarm Op- 
erator, 3 at $1,- 
900.00 5,700.00"; 

The veto of these two items is 
made on the recommendation of the 
Bureau of Efficiency for the reason 
that under the rules of the classified 
service the persons holding the po- 
sitions appropriated for by same 
are entitled to compensation at the 
rate of $1,700.00 per annum, the 
salary of same having been raised 
above the amount originally intend- 
ed to be paid to junior fire alarm 
operators; 

Two items, appearing under the 
heading "Department of Buildings", 
on page 3524 of the same Journal, 
reading: 

"Building Inspector, 

51 at $1,440.00 73,440.00, 



3662 



COMMUNICATIONS. ETC. 



January 26, 1914. 



"Building Inspectors 
(144 months) at 
$120.00, to be em- 
ployed between 
April 1 and Oct. 1 . ..17,280.00"; 

The Building Commissioner has 
informed me that if provision is not 
made for employing sixty-three in- 
spectors throughout the year, he 
will be compelled to dispense with 
fourteen regular inspectors. The 
business of the department requires 
not less than sixty-three regular 
inspectors to be employed through- 
out the entire year; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Health — 
Bureau of Vital Statistics", on page 
3529 of the same Journal, read- 
ing: 

"Senior Clerk 1,320.00" 

I am informed that the person 
holding the said position is entitled 
to compensation at the rate of $1,- 
440.00, he being eligible therefor 
under the rules governing the 
classified service; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Health — 
Board of Examiners of Plumbers", 
on page 3531 of the same Journal, 
reading : 

"Junior Clerk 840.00". 

The secretary of the board says 
that a clerk competent to perform 
the duties of that position cannot 
be obtained for less than $1,200.00; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Smoke In- 
spection", on page 3539 of the same 
Journal, reading: 

"Junior Mechanical En- 
gineer, 4 at $1,- 
620.00 6,480.00". 

Also an item appearing on the 
same page, reading: 

"Junior Mechanical En- 
gineer, 6 at $1,500.00.9,000.00". 

My reason for vetoing the two 
preceding items is that I am in- 
formed that there are five persons 
instead of four holding the first of 
these positions who are eligible for 



the salary of $1,620.00 per annum, 
and that there are only five instead 
of six holding the $1,500.00 posi- 
tions; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Board of Local Improve- 
ments", on page 3541 of the same 
Journal, reading: 

"Principal Special As- 
sessment Clerk, 2 at 
$1,800.00 3,600.00". 

Also an item appearing on the 
same page, reading: 

"Principal Clerk 1,980.00". 

I am advised that the titles of 
the positions mentioned in the two 
preceding items were reversed, and 
that the person designated therein 
as "Principal Clerk" receiving the 
higher salary, should be known as a 
"Principal Special Assessment 
Clerk" while the position for which 
compensation of $1,800.00 is pro- 
vided should be known as "Princi- 
pal Clerk". I am informed that 
there is only one person to be ap- 
propriated for instead of two for 
the latter position; 

An item appearing under the i 
heading "Board of Local Improve- 
ments", on page 3541 of the same 
Journal, reading: 

"Junior Clerk, 19 at 

$1,200.00 22,800.00". 

Also an item appearing on the 
same page, reading: 

"Junior Bookkeeper, 6 

at $1,200.00 7,200.00". 

The reason for vetoing the two 
preceding items is that one of the 
persons appropriated for as a 
"Junior Bookkeeper" is in fact a 
junior clerk, and, therefore, the ap- 
propriation should be for 20 Junior 
Clerks and 5 Junior Bookkeepers; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Board of Local Improve- 
ments", on page 3542 of the same 
Journal, reading: 

"Junior Engineer, 5 at 

$1,500.00 ....7,500.00". 

There are at present twelve en- 
gineers in this department. Unless 






January 26, 1914. 



COMMUNICATIONS. ETC.

. 



the item hereby vetoed is increased 
to six, the present force would be 
diminished and the work of the de- 
partment hampered; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Board of Local Improve- 
ments", on page 3542 of the same 
Journal, reading: 

"Additional Brick In- 
spectors as needed, 
10 months at $110.00 
per month 1,100.00" 

I am informed that there is only 
one brick inspector employed for 
ten months, and, therefore, his sal- 
ary should be fixed for the period 
for which he is to be employed; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Board of Local Improve- 
ments", on page 3543 of the same 
Journal, reading: 

'"50-A6 House Drain 
Inspectors, 42 months 
at $100.00 per month. 4,200.00". 
My reason for vetoing this item is 
I am advised by the Efficiency Com- 
mission that some of the men per- 
forming this service are eligible to 
advancement; 

The following items under the 
heading "Special Park Commission 
— Bathing Beaches", appearing on 
page 3554 of the same Journal, 
reading: 

"Assistant Bathing 
Beach Director at 
$2.00 a day for 4 

months $3,320.00 

Life Savers at $2.00 

a day for 4 months. 720.00". 
These positions ought to receive 
at least the same pay as laborers in 
the city employ; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Gas and 
Electricity — Bureau of Fire Alarm 
and Police Telegraph Systems, Op- 
eration and Maintenance and all 
Electric Light Operation and Main- 
tenance Except Arc Lamps", on page 
3556 of the same Journal, reading: 
"Lineman, 38 at $1,- 

500.00 57,000.00". 



My reason for vetoing this item is 
that such linemen should be em- 
ployed at not to exceed the union 
scale of wages; 

An item appearing under the same 
heading on the same page of said 
Journal reading: 

"Laborers, at $2.50 per 

day 6,752.50"; 

also the following items appearing 
under the heading "Department of 
Gas and Electricity — Arc Lamps, Op- 
eration and Maintenance" on page 
3559 of the same Journal, reading: 
"80-C General supplies 93,000.00" 
"80-D Material for re- 
pairs and replace- 
ments 38,200.00" 

"80-H Printing, sta- 
tionery and office 
supplies 4,900.00" 

and also the following items ap- 
pearing under the heading "Depart- 
ment of Gas and Electricity — Street 
Lighting by Contract or Open Or- 
der" on page 3560 of the same Jour- 
nal reading: 
"80-O Electrical cur- 
rent 200,000.00 

80-O1 Operating elec- 
trical sub-station. . 20,000.00 

80-04 Rental of elec-

sary 150,000.00

including electrical 
current 24,000.00

fits, claims and re-

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



January 26, 1914. 



and also the following items ap- 
pearing under the heading "Depart- 
ment of Gas and Electricity — Con- 
struction" on page 3561 of the same 
Journal, reading: 

"80-X-22 Removal of 

Poles and Wires, 

Electric Lighting 

System, account of 

Street Improve- 
ments, including 

labor and material. .14,000.00", 
"80-X-4 Lighting of 

Railway Subways, to 

be done by the City 

in accordance with 

Court decision 20,000.00". 

I will not set out here my reasons 
for vetoing these items of appro- 
priation in the department of gas 
and electricity. I have vetoed these 
items at the request of the head of 
that department and the reasons 
therefore are contained in his letter 
to me of the 26th inst., a copy of 
which is attached hereto; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Bureau of Streets — Permit 
Division — Street and Public Utility 
Inspection" on page 3569 of the same 
Journal, reading: 

"Street Inspector (in- 
cluding personally 
owned vehicle and 
maintenance there- 
of), 16 at $2,100.00.. 33,600.00". 

I am informed that there are only 
fifteen of these inspectors in the said 
bureau, and that the said appro- 
priation is therefore incorrect. I 
also believe that it is unfair to re- 
quire these inspectors to acquire 
and operate a vehicle at their own 
expense unless their salary is very 
materially increased; 

Also an item appearing under the 
same heading and on the same page 
'of the Journal, reading: 
"Street Inspector ■ (in- 
eluding personally 
owned vehicle and 
maintenance thereof), 

3 at $1,920.00 5,760.00". 

My reason for vetoing this item 



is that I believe it is unfair to re- 
quire these inspectors to acquire and 
maintain a vehicle at their own ex- 
pense unless their salary is very ma- 
terially increased; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Bureau of Streets — Gen- 
eral Administration and Superin- 
tendence" on page 3607 of the same 
journal reading: 

"General Foreman of 
Asphalt Repairs (in- 
cluding transporta- 
tion) 2,200.00". 

The Commissioner of Public 
Works and the Civil Service Com- 
mission both have requested me to 
veto this item and to recommend to 
your Honorable Body that the ap- 
propriation be made the same as 
last year; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Bureau of Sewers — House 
Drains" on page 3611 of the same 
Journal, reading: 

"House Drain Inspect- 
ors, 300 months, at 
$100.00 per month. .30,000.00". 
These men are eligible to ad- 
vancement because of seniority of 
service; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Bureau of Sewers — Hege- 
wisch Pumping Station" on page 
3613 of the same Journal, reading: 
"301-L-l Fuel and 
power (including re- 
serve) 12,035.00"; 

also an item appearing under the 
heading "Bureau of Sewers — Re- 
pairing Sewers" on page 3614 of the 
same Journal, reading: 

"301-D-2 Material for 
repairs and replace- 
ments 11,000.00". 

The Commissioner of Public 
Works states that these appropria- 
tions are insufficient; 

The three items appearing under 
the heading "Bureau of Engineer- 
ing — Bridge and Viaducts — Repairs 
and Replacements", on page 3617 of 
the same Journal, reading: 






January 26, 1914. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC.

"Foreman Machinists, at 
$6.50 per day, 313 
days 2,034.50", 

"Foreman Electrical Me- 
chanics, at $6.50 per 
day, 313 days 2,034.50", 

"Foreman Bridge and 
Structural Iron Work- 
ers, at $6.50 per day, 

3f3 days 2,034.50". 

My reason for vetoing said three 
items is that the three foremen pro- 
vided for in the appropriations, un- 
der the rules of the classified serv- 
ice, are entitled to salaries of $2,- 
100.00 per year each, instead of a 
per diem as appropriated for. It is 
not fair treatment to the city to 
shift yearly men to day pay; 

An item appearing under the same 
heading and on the same page of 
said Journal reading: 
"Junior Clerk to act as 
timekeeper, 2 at $1,- 

200.00 2,400.00". 

I am informed that the two junior 
clerks employed in the said bureau 
for these positions are eligible for a 
salary of only $840.00 per annum 
instead of $1,200.00 per annum; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Harbor and Subway Com- 
mission— Harbor" on page 3624 of 
the same Journal, reading: 
"One-third of Adminis- 
tration salaries in- 
cluding office force. . .15,000"; 

also the item appearing under the 

same heading and on the same page 

of said Journal, reading: 
"8U0-K One-third of 

rents 2,800.00"; 

also the item: 
"800-X For con- 
struction of Sub- 
structure and Su- 
perstructure o f 
Pier No. 2, Har- 
bor District No. 
1, payable from 
proceeds of Har- 
bor Construction 
Bonds. Total es- 



timated cost, $3,- 
000,000.00. To be 
expended in 1914 $1,428,910.00". 
The Harbor and Subway Commis- 
sion requests that the appropria- 
tions for these items be increased. 
These changes incur no additional 
appropriation for the commission 
since they are deducted from the 
item "800-X" for construction work; 
An item appearing under the 
heading "Appropriations for Con- 
struction and Betterments — Contin- 
gent on Bond Issue", on page 3625 
of the same Journal, reading : 
"Department of Police 
New Buildings and 

Sites $2,500,000.00". 

Also an item under the same head- 
ing on the same page of said Jour- 
nal, reading: 

"Department of Fire 
New Buildings and 

Sites $2,500,000.00". 

My reason for vetoing the two 
preceding items is that it is neces- 
sary, in order that the money from 
the proposed bond issues for im- 
provements and betterments for the 
police and fire departments may be 
available, for building and other 
purposes, that appropriations for 
each building or other improve- 
ment or betterment shall be made as 
a specific item; 

An item appearing under the 
heading "Department of Public 
Works — Repairs and Maintenance, 
Mains, Hydrants, Valves and Serv-

$75.00 per month, 

and laborers at first 

year service $2:50 

per day, second year 

service $2.85 per 

day, after second 

year $3.00 per

My reason for vetoing the said 
item is that laborers at first year's 
service are provided for therein at 
the rate of $2.50 per day, whereas, 
this class of service is paid for .at 
the rate of $2.75 per day, and the 
appropriation should therefore be 
amended. 

By reason of the above vetoes, the 
said appropriation ordinance will 
necessarily be incomplete and I 
therefore recommend that the said 
ordinance be amended by the pas- 
sage of the ordinance submitted 
herewith, and I further recommend 
that the said amendatory ordinance 
be passed without the usual refer- 
ence to a committee. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Garter H. Harrison, • 

Mayor. 

The following communication was 
submitted with said veto message : 

Department op Gas and ] 
Electricity, j> 

Chicago, January 16, 191 4.J 
Hon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor 

City of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — I would respectfully 
call your attention to the following 
items as they appear in the report 
of the Committee on Finance, ap- 
propriation bill 1914: 

On page 68, last item : Laborers at 
$2.50, $6,752. In 1913 we had an ap- 
propriation of $7,162.50. Our esti- 
mate for 1914 was $11,250; the 
Comptroller's estimate, $7,162.50, 
and this has been further reduced 
by the Finance Committee. This 
item should be substantially in- 
creased, as we are very badly in 
need of more laborers, and if the 
amount recommended by the Fi- 



nance Committee stands, it will 
mean that our present force will 
have to be reduced. 

On page 71, Fund 80-C, general 
supplies: Our estimate is $122,- 
537; Comptroller's estimate $100,- 
000; recommended by Finance Com- 
mittee, $93,000. On December 29th 
I wrote you relative to the necessity 
of having an appropriation for the 
full amount of our estimate made on 
this fund. We have already received 
proposals for the furnishing of car- 
bons, lamps and globes to be pur- 
chased out of this fund during 1914, 
the amount necessary in each case 
being estimated according to the 
number of lamps we expect to have 
in service during 1914, and the ag- 
gregate number of proposals for 
these commodities alone is $126,000. 
It would appear, therefore, as 
though we had under-estimated 
when we submitted the figure of 
$122,537. However, I believe we can 
get through the year with an ap- 
propriation of this amount, but the 
amount as it appears in the report ' 
of the Finance Committee is wholly 
inadequate. 

On Fund 80-D, on the same page, 
our estimate was $52,165; Comptrol- 
ler's estimate, $43,550, and this has 
been reduced to $38,200 by the Fi- 
nance Committee. Appropriation 
should be made for at least the 
amount of the Comptroller's esti- 
mate. 

Under Fund 80-H on the same 
page our estimate is $6,440; Comp- 
troller's estimate, $5,200; Finance 
Committee's recommendation, $4 f - 
900. This amount should be in- 
creased to at least $6,000. 

The item under Fund 80-K, 
"Rental of Real Estate and Build- 
ings, $3,521", does not appear in the 
Finance Committee's report. I pre- 
sume this is an error, but I call at- 
tention to it so that it may be rein- 
serted before the passage of the 
budget. 

On page 72, a substantial reduction 
has been made in the funds for 



January 26, 1914.

itreet lighting by contract or open 
order. The following table shows 
the amounts approved for these 
various funds by the Finance Com- 
mittee when I appeared before them, 
as compared with the figures now 
contained in the report of this com- 
mittee: 

Originally Appearing 
Approved. in Report. 

80-O $215,000 $200,000 

01 21,000 20,000 

04 112,500 107,000 

06 127,260 120,000 

07 164,640 150,000 

08 26,000 24,000 

As regards the first two items, un- 
der Fund 80 and 80-01, our estimate 
was based on the number of electric 
lamps which we expect to have in 
operation during the year. The 
amounts originally approved by ttie 
Finance Committee should stand. 

With reference to the reductions 
made in the various other funds for 
street lighting, of course, if the ap- 
propriation is made in accordance 
with report, it will mean that we 
will have a lesser number of lights. 
These lights are badly needed, and 
requisitions for extensions are con- 
stantly being made. To come any- 
where meeting the demands, we 
should have at least the amounts 
originally approved by the Finance 
Committee. 

On the same page, under Fund 
80-S. our estimate was $3,632.50; 
Comptroller's estimate, $2,400; 
amount recommended by the Fi- 
nance Committee. $1,944. This 
amount should be at least $3,000. 

On page 73, under Fund 80-X4, 
•$30,000 was originally approved by 
the Finance Committee, and it has 
been reduced to $20,000. To com- 
plete the lighting of the railway sub- 
ways will require at least $30,000, 
and this amount should stand as or- 
iginally approved. 

Last year, after the Finance Com- 
mittee had submitted its report, I 
took up with you the question of 
reductions that had been made upon 



various funds for this department, 
and you had the increases made. In 
this letter I am calling your atten- 
tion only to such funds as I think 
should be increased, and I trust you 
may have changes made in accord- 
ance with the above. 

Very truly yours, 
(Signed) Ray Palmer, 

Commissioner of Gas and Electric- 
ity.

COMMISSIONER OF HEALTH. 



The Clerk presented the follow- 
ing communication submitted by 
the Commissioner of Health, which 
was ordered published and referred 
to the Committee on Health: 

Department of Health,") 
Chicago, January 26, 1914.) 

To his Honor, the Mayor, and the 
Honorable, the City Council, City 
of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On January 5, 1914, 
your Honorable Body passed an or- 
der (page 3339 of Council Proceed- 
ings) as follows: 

"Ordered, That the Commis- 
sioner of Health be and he is 
hereby directed to report to this 
Council an analysis and signifi- 
cance of same, of drinking water 
taken from the pipes connected 
with the various 'Cribs of (the 
City, for a period of seven days." 

Owing to the delay incident to the 
printing and distribution of the 
Council Proceedings, the order in 
question did not reach me until the 
10th of January. On Monday, the 
12th, arrangements were made for 
compliance with the Council Order, 



January 26, 1914., 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



3683 



and, beginning January 13, samples 
were collected, for a period of seven 
days, from the Rogers Park Pump- 
ing Station, Lake View Pumping 
Station, Chicago Avenue Pumping 
Station, 14th Street Pumping Sta- 
tion, and 68th Street Pumping 
Station. 

The result of the bacteriological 
examination of these samples is 
contained in the report enclosed 
herewith. Stripped of technical 
language the report shows that 
none of the thirty-five samples 
Brave evidence of the colon bacillus 
in one cubic centimeter. 31.7 per 
tvnt showed the presence of this or- 
ganism in ten cubic centimeters. 



This can be fairly stated to be a 
satisfactory condition of affairs, 
and, considered in connection with 
the very low counts obtained when 
incubation was made at body tem- 
perature, indicates a very satis- 
factory condition of the water sup- 
Ply. 

A series of samples taken during 
practically the same period from 
the same stations in January, 1913, 
showed the presence of colon in 8 
per cent of the one cubic centi- 
meter samples. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) G. B. Young, 

Commissioner of Health.
